My Grading Scale: 100-90= Top-notch, must see (4.5/5 and 5/5) 80-90=Good Movie, guaranteed entertainment(4/5) 80-70=Some flaws, but still above average (3.25/5 and 3.75/5) 70-60=Strictly or slightly above average, missing major qualities (2.5/5-3/5) 60-50=Don't bother watching (0/5-2.25/5) Overall Score (72/100) Story: 7/10 - It sounds standard when you read the summary but when you watch the story it is truly different and complex, becoming an important asset when paired with its brilliant screenplay Screenplay: 9/10- Very well done-even at 3 hrs of duration, the movie does not bore and switches through mutliple sub-plots while weaving together characters/motives, action/comedy and songs Characterizations/Acting: 7/10- Many characters, but all seasoned and tuned to appeal to various genres (comedy, action, villain), often doing multiple at the same time Theme/Entertainment Factor 8/10: Strong, under arching theme of justice, revenge and aggression mixed with comedy, family and action create a very entertaining movie Art Direction/Costume Design: 6/10- Fairly standard but pairs well with a good color palette/ decent costumes Sound Design: 7/10- Good sound effects Cinematography: 6/10- Well handled, but fairly standard Action: 8/10- Good action and chase sequences, despite being a little too gruesome for family audiences at times Songs: 7/10- Entertaining, pumped with energy and good music but all to abundant Background Music: 7/10- Nice asset, although redundant at times

Dookudu is completely Mahesh Babu's show all the way and he carries it very well with his timing and dialogue delivery. The part with Prakash Raj felt way too extended, unnecessary and even made it boring at few points. Comedy by MS Narayana, Brahmanandam, Dharmavarapu, others and Mahesh Babu himself keeps the movie watchable. Overall, it may be something you can watch once but nothing really special about this movie.
